Fireworks stores thrive on Independence Day


While many people are enjoying a day off, for one business this is one of their busiest day of the year.

Mess’s Fireworks in Great Bend Pennsylvania had numerous last minute shoppers today looking to light up the sky.

With fireworks being a staple of Independence Day for decades, customers are constantly looking to improve their shows.

Store manager Heather Merrell says that they try to keep their inventory changing to try and spice up the age old tradition.

“Every year we try to add some new things. Things that have different effects or colors then we’ve had before. We try to put videos on our website so people can do their research before they come in and have a good idea of what they’re looking for,” she said.

Merrell added that changes to firework laws in New York and Pennsylvania has brought in a lot of new faces.
